Nothing wrong with consoles. If you like PC go PC. If you like Consoles God consoles. I like consoles because I like video game party and I like the traditional feel with an up to date experience. Just enjoy what you like.

Gave it one chance in the past and ended up disappointed. To me PC is much better and cheaper in the longer run. You don't have a problem with upgrades every 2-3 years? That's fine, but a lot of people will. And with many different models of the same console on the market (because it will happen, as not everyone will be upgrading right away), the game devs will have a tough choice...either make the game "playable" on all the available models of a console, or abandon the older models completely. MS will be fine, and devs...eventually, but consumers will get the worse end of that stick. Gaming consoles won people over because of being generational devices. People liked it, because they could buy it once every 10 years without worrying about upgrade. Some people will like the new strategy, but I think most people won't. I wonder how Sony will react to that, if they make the right move, they will be the go to choice for gaming consoles. Microsoft is desperately trying to change something with recent years of fiasco in every department, so it can be a bit difficult for the people who want to bet on them right now.

A lot of people upgrades their iphones and galaxies yearly, heck, even some die hard samsung supporters upgrade every 6 months from S to note to S to note.
I don't trust xbox one s 2tb being soldout as it's available pretty much everywhere. People are waiting for the "budget" 500gb version.
PS4 neo's main attraction will be vr, as it's underpowered for 4k native gaming so we'll see what sony's strategy will be. I am 100% allergic to anything vr so i will most likely skip neo.

MS said, that 2TB limited edition Xbone S sold out, but they refuse to release the numbers, so it can mean, that they sold 100 consoles and bragging about it. Now they announced, that Scorpio is the last generational console, so there will be a new Xbox every 2-3 years now? So they pretty much turned it into a pre-built PC, which we be released so often, that it'll kill the advantage consoles had. Sales will be affected no doubt. MS is a very uncertain horse to bet on right now.
jos, 11 Aug 2016Microsoft should continue making phones because only windows OS for phone is SENSIBLE, USEFUL,... moreThere is not many sensibility pricing phones around 700 with an OS, that nobody wants. Functionality? It's a matter of preference. With Nova Launcher and few tweaks I can make Android much more functional than WP is, and I will still have all the benefits of the biggest mobile OS. I'm not trying to convince you, I couldn't care less about which OS and device you will pick. If you think WP isn't in trouble, then look at the market shares. 2.8% last month. No respectable dev will care about developing their products with those numbers in mind.

Xbox scorpio is 1 year away, so not around the corner. Xbox one S is still a native 4k player and being a slimmer and updated xbox one, demand should be present.

Microsoft should abandon completely WP and focus on Xbox and Windows department. WP is dead already, we all know Xbox could use a little bit more wind in its sails this generation, and Win10 really needs to get its sh1t together if MS wants more people to upgrade. That being said...weird, that the console sold out (unless there was like 100 units available), since Scorpio is just around the corner.
